We seek a PhD graduate or equivalent to help develop a new Magnetic Resonance Imaging prototype based on a small-scale superconducting magnet. The position will suit someone with a background in MRI and NMR physics or engineering, who is interested in working in a more applied environment. The position is for two years, based in Wellington New Zealand, but the possibility exists for further employment with a partner company.
The MRI Engineer/Physicist will be responsible for a range of software and MRI pulse sequence development, hardware construction, electronic and electromagnetic engineering, application design, technical documentation and support activities around the MRI system. The work will involve aspects of the whole range of NMR and MRI from engineering to data processing. The appointee will also assist in applications development for other prototype NMR systems developed by the team.
In addition to a good understanding of NMR, applicants should have good software programming skills and a knowledge of Matlab, C++, and the Windows programming environment.
Applications, including a cv, a covering letter explaining the candidate’s interest in the job, and the names and email addresses of two referees, should be addressed to Professor Paul Callaghan, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and sent by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications close on 31 January, 2011.
